Hi! My name's Sarah and this is a blog full of everything I wish to share and whatever goes through my mind when I sit down to blog. :)

I'm also starting college this fall. However, I'm going to a state university because I got a lot of scholarships and I want to transfer out after my 1st year. I will be applying to USC as an out-of-state transfer student-- any tips you can give me?

Hey! I actually don’t know too much about transferring but do try and make sure all your credits can transfer to USC (and other schools you’re applying to) or you may need to retake a lot of classes. Since USC is private, they’re pretty good about financial aid packages but if that’s still a concern for you (like it was for me) then I’d recommend starting to apply to more scholarships. I’ve had really good experiences when contacting different USC offices so feel free to email or call them if you need any help. Also, there are different requirements for applications based on your major and school you’re applying to so make sure you look into that. Here’s a link to the admissions blog post about transfer applicant tips: https://admissionblog.usc.edu/2013/01/17/tips-for-transfer-applicants/.

Hope that helps!

Dorm Haul!

Dorm room shopping is one of the most exciting parts of preparing for college life so I’ve been running around trying to make sure I’ve got everything I need. Unfortunately, I don’t even have half of what I need (and I move in in a month! O.O) since I’m moving across the country and it’s so much more practical to just buy everything over there and online. So, for you out of staters, I TOTALLY recommend either buying everything in the city that you’re moving to OR just have everything shipped over. For me, I’m not supposed to ship anything to my dorm room until I officially check-in but luckily, I know a few people in SoCal so I can ship things over there. For bedding and such, since I don’t have much time to shop around in LA, I’ve actually just ordered a package through my school and it’ll just be ready for me when I move-in (woohoo!) and everything else that I order online (I have a TON of architecture supplies), I’ll have it shipped to someone’s house in LA and then go pick it up. Word of advice, if you do ship things over to someone else’s house, try to not overstay your welcome and make sure they know you’re sending things over and try your best to have it shipped near the time that you plan on coming to pick it up. 

Right, so I live for checklists and to-do lists SO I made a list of everything I should have as part of my “dorm haul”. My personal written list is a little messy so I’ll just type up a more organized list for all you lovelies that will be going to college in the fall. Check it out and let me know if there’s something I left off or just some other recommendations you may have. Trust me, any and all advice will be much appreciated. :)

One last thing! This is more geared towards girls (sorry guys) but I’m sure plenty of stuff on here is standard for any college student. :)

Hello lovely followers!

For quite some time now I’ve been thinking about starting a personal blog. Since I’ll be moving across the country in a little over a month and basically starting a new life, I want to document my experiences, thoughts, and just have a place to write and post about whatever I want to. 

First off, let me introduce myself. I’ve been thinking about how exactly I could describe myself – since I’m such a dynamic, interesting, and hilarious person (not really, but maybe idk?) – and I think I’ll just list the first 20 facts about myself that I can come up with. After I got accepted to this one university everyone on the facebook page started introducing themselves with a list of 20 facts so I decided I’d try it and let me tell you, it’s a lot harder than you’d think. Give it a try, I dare you. ;)

 I have a weird obsession with anchors and anything nautical (don’t even get me started on shirts with horizontal stripes - it’s a weaknesses)
I’m moving from Georgia to Los Angeles (beautiful weather here I come) and I’m psyched!
 This fall, I’ll be a freshman at the University of Southern California
 Since I’m from the south I always need to clarify that I’m going to the USC “in Cali not Carolina” since everyone assumes I’ll be going to South Carolina.
 I’ll be an architecture major!
 I love photography and graphic design and basically any form of art
 I think corny jokes are the best jokes
 I could easily spend hours in a museum
 One of my goals in life is to be 5’2” (right now I’m 5’1.75” so I’m ALMOST there) it just takes a bit of willpower right?
 People tell me I smile too much :)
I was born in Georgia and have lived here my whole life
I’m a proud nerd… I study and read a lot
I love to volunteer
I’m really struggling through this right now… why can’t I think about anything else about me? Um, oh! I loveeee country music hehe J not all of it, but I do like a lot of country songs I hear
I eat really healthy and I rarely have junk food at home so whenever someone comes over I need to remember to go out and bring chips or something
I wanna travel the world
I like to bake. I make cookies, cakes, and really good apple pie! I can’t really cook anything except pasta though. Oh, and I’ve caught plenty of stuff on fire when I bake. Once I was putting something in the oven and my oven mit caught on fire and I didn’t even notice until someone came by and told me. Oh and there was this one time when I tried turning on the stove and I guess my bracelet was too close to the flame and that caught on fire but just the edges singed (it was a friendship bracelet so obviously my friendship can stand the test of fire)
Oh no I’m near the end, I love genuine smiles and laughing till my stomach hurts
 I like hiking
I’ve donated my hair twice (once to Locks of Love and once to Pantene Beautiful Lengths) and that was supposed to be my last time (I really wanna dye my hair and/or get a keratin treatment and you can’t donate your hair with that in it) but someone close to me has cancer again and so I’ve decided to grow it out to make a wig as a gift for them. The only problem is that my hair isn’t long enough right now and I want the hair to be really nice so I’ll trim it to get rid of split ends which means it’ll take even longer for me to have the right length so it’ll take some time but it’ll be worth it

Phewwww, so there’s that. If you want to know more about me, just ask. J Oh and everything below this post are the tons and tons of posts I’ve reblogged. I’ve become too attached to them to just start a new blog fresh haha
